using kryoflux gui without driver installed

Post by hyperactive » Fri Jul 20, 2012 10:17 pm

Hi.
I have a few commodore 64 KryoFlux streams that people have sent me and I would like to convert them to .g64 using the gui. Can I do this without having to install the driver?
Thanks.

It's very straightforward writing a batch file and using the command line for this.

But should work selecting stream as drive and setting output to CBM GCR image.

No driver required.

That's right, select "Stream Files" from the drive menu, and when you press "Start" you will be prompted for your stream file directory.

I have tried this without the driver being installed, and it does work, but only after I put winusb.dll in the same directory (which I had to take from a system with the driver installed). That was on XP.

Yes, The problem is that I need to somehow get a hold of the file winusb.dll. Any ways I can do this without installing it? I can't install the driver because I haven't got the KryoFlux device yet.

Okay, here are ones extracted from a Windows 7 box. The winusb.dll was in windows/system32 and the winusb64.dll (named as winusb.dll too) was in the wow64 folder. Try sticking them in the same folder as the kryoflux-ui.jar and DTC.exe files. I am not sure if they will work for you or not, but worth a try.

The file should be in your Windows installation folder, e.g. "i386". Just take the genuine one...

Please note, for most games you should use the -k2 option. Not sure what is the correct way of doing that from the GUI.

In the GUI, you need to change the track distance to 40 in the image profile settings screen.
